The traditional St. Patrick's Day fare isn't just for beer
Because of the strong taste of corned beef, pair it with a wine that has some acidity.
If you are a white wine drinker, Riesling or Pinot Grigio are great choices. Rieslings tend to be lighter, which will even out the heaviness of such a complex meal. The sweetness of the Riesling can also cut the saltiness of the meal.
For red wine drinkers, stay away from a heavy wine with tannins. Tannins will not pair well with the saltiness of this meal and will cause a bitter aftertaste. Choose a lighter red wine with a bold flavor but not too sweet. A Pinot Noir or Italian Chianti are great compliments as both feature light fruit notes and some acidity.
